    Having trouble not being an overweight midget who needs box pleats on my shirts because I'm too lazy to control my eating. Literally every oxford I've been looking at has a box pleat, making the actual body of the shirt about 2x too big.

    Well...it's a traditional feature on and oxford cloth shirt. That's the look - they're not really supposed to figure hugging. Of course, if they are still too big for your tastes it easy to get them taken in.

    I understand. I'm just having a whinge. Having to wait a week before you can wear anything as it's getting altered kind of gets a little old. Just having a little rant.

    I expect the Government will announce this afternoon it will not alter the tax-free import threshold of $1,000, and will address inefficiencies in import mechanisms.

    Stay tuned for wailing from out of touch retailers - and my favourite rent seeker and race horse owner - Gerry Harvey.

    It is so hot. Who thought that global warming would be a great idea?

    Do you sail as well DB? The Gold Coast is pretty lack luster for sailing. There are plenty of great races down here in Sydney. That picture depicts pleasure sailing, which has a target audience of consisting of retirees. I prefer to go a bit faster.

    If a wedding has a dress-code of "cocktail" and starts at 6.00pm at a posh restaurant, what do you think that means? I suspect the groom will suit/no tie, but not sure.

    I assume that would mean black bow-tie and tux.

    Michael you're thinking of black tie, which would be very overdressed for a restaraunt and what he is describing, Suit and no tie is what I'd assume as well. If it had lounge suit I'd assume ties should be worn. I'd still wear a tie for cocktail though fwiw.
